BREAKING | GO service on hold in Niagara
Metrolinx has sent a letter to Niagara Region saying the "delivery process for new GO stations, including Grimsby GO" has been stopped while it looks for "third party partners."
The government has asked Metrolinx to look into the feasibility of a "market driven approach to delivering transit infastructure."
Niagara MPP Wayne Gates says it's an approach being proposed for the new Mimico GO station.
Metrolinx is in negotiations with a real estate developer who owns the land to the north of the existing Mimico GO.
Under the plan, the developer would construct the main building and parking.
In return, it would get the right to develop above the station as part of mixed use development.
Gates say it might be a good idea as long as it doesn't hold up timelines for GO coming to Niagara.
Outgoing Grimsby mayor Bob Bentley says it could have a tremendous opportunity for Niagara or it could be a nightmare if they put it in a place where it won't fit.
Bentley say more detail is needed.
